A Controversial Build
Trump International Golf Links Scotland is Donald Trump’s latest golf project. Located just outside of Aberdeen, Scotland (~2.5 hours north of St. Andrews), this is probably one of the most controversial builds in a long time. The process started back in ~2006 where the town denied Trump’s plans to build a new golf course in the small town on the eastern coast of Scotland. After a long and drawn out process, Trump did manage to get his way and built what I would say is one of the best new designs in modern golf. The architect for the project was famous Links course designer Martin Hawtree. Here’s what he had to say about the project:
“I was made aware of Mr. Trump’s ambitions to produce a world-class, 18-Hole links course, following the great tradition of Scottish links golf, capable of one day hosting a major golf championship. My inspection of the site left me in no doubt of its exceptional qualities of environment as well as potential for golf of a very high order and I very quickly came to share his vision and seize a rare opportunity to create a new links course of quite extraordinary power, beauty, challenge and interest.” Dr. Martin Hawtree
My visit occurred a day after the grand opening on July 12th. Although I didn’t have time to play golf, I was given a quick driving tour of the course and this is where I captured the following images. All images were processed using a variety of techniques and software including Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop, NIK Software, and Imagenomic.
